Area high school students participated in the annual Science Olympiad competition at Northampton Community College on February 28. The Science Olympiad is a tournament of rigorous academic interscholastic competitions that consist of a series of individual and team events.
Thirteen area high schools participated in the Science Olympiad. The competition was broken up into three divisions: Mountain Valley Conference, Lehigh Valley Conference, and Overall. Schools competed against other schools in their regions, and then for overall bragging rights.
